Tesla had announced during Q4 revised sales forecast in the neighborhood of 2500-3250 Model S’s during the quarter.
Because Tesla is not releasing those numbers except in quarterly SEC filings, the Tesla fan community has crowd-sourced the data instead. That data shows Model S reservations occurring at an average rate of 89 per day, which is a very fast rate. This is more than Tesla’s production rate, I believe.
The phrase is “surplus of demand”.
Next – Tesla has already multiplied its revenue greatly … has already had at least a brief moment of operating at cash flow break even … and has already sold enough electric cars to significantly shift the total sales of electric cars.
That with an ultra-expensive luxury car, while the likes of Nissan are struggling to find interested buyers for the more modestly priced Nissan Leaf.
